Teachers provide students with so much: a helping hand, a welcoming presence, and a boost of confidence when times get especially tough. To prepare for the upcoming Teacher Appreciation Week, and in order to show gratitude to our educators for all the hard work they do in and out of the classroom, our team here at Atlanta Divorce Law Group wanted to offer some tips to help empower both you and your kids to appreciate their teachers all year long.
Phone calls are important, meaning parents and teachers should try to make calls or email with one another to provide information, encouragement, advice, and direction. Even though we’re all busy, communication is essential, and these updates could save time and prevent potential issues in the long run.
Knowing the academic standards for your child will help explain what is expected of him or her for a particular school year. Setting aside the time to understand some of the concepts that your child is learning will help your child’s teacher immensely in the classroom. It will also be important for you in supporting your child at home when they ask for some help with their homework.
Don’t be afraid to set up a time to meet with your child’s teacher to review these strategies so you can better help your student at home. Open houses or parent/teacher conferences also provide a great opportunity to bring up these questions. Here, parents could receive strategies on how to help their children with learning in and out of the classroom environment.
When a teacher does provide feedback, it is important to comprehend what is being shared and find ways to incorporate advice and suggestions, whenever relevant. While a teacher is with your child often and has the goal of helping them learn and grow, the time and energy you put into your child’s education will show.
If you’re looking for other ideas regarding how you and your kid(s) can take some time to honor their instructors, don’t hesitate to give us a call, so we can help brainstorm or offer resources!
